ATTICA, Ind. - Troy T. Myers, Attica, passed away at 8:22 p.m.EST Thursday, December 14, 2017, in St. Elizabeth East Hospital, Lafayette, Ind.
Troy was born on May 28, 1966, in Lafayette. He was the son of Jerry F. and Helen A. (Trent) Myers. He was a lifelong resident of Attica and graduated from Attica in 1984.
Growing up, Troy figured out he had a real passion for anything off-road related. After attending college, he put his entrepreneurial skills to use and followed his dream and opened the Badlands Off-road Park in Attica in 1995. Following his passions of riding, building, modifying and pushing anything with a motor to a new level, he generated a massive impact in the motorsports industry that he had an enormous love for. Throughout the years he became well known, respected, admired and by his friends family and colleagues.
He accomplished so many things through the many years. One of his favorite and most prestigious accomplishments in his career was winning a national rock crawling title. In 2015, he was recognized by the city of Attica for his contributions to the city.
Of all his achievements, the impacts to the people in his life were his true legacy. Troy was the definition of humble. No one will ever know exactly who or how much he contributed to the people in his life. There are very few people who touched as many people and meant so much to so many as Troy. Being missed will be an understatement.
Troy married Lisa M. Freeman on July 12, 1986, in Attica. She survives along with his parents, Jerry and Helen Myers of Attica; brother, Todd (Lori) Myers of Attica and their children, Brent and Alexis; uncle, Phillip "Bud" (Margie) Trent; "Cousin Aunt" Sankey Raisor; cousins, Tiffany (Kerry) Synesael and their children, Kelton and Brady; cousins Brittany (Jeff) and their children Maci and Mya; father-in-law, Robert Freeman; sister-in-law, Susan Freeman and her children, Rob and Abigail; brothers-in-law, Tony Freeman, Brian (Sharon) Freeman and their children, Summer and Kale.
A celebration of Troy's life will be 4-10 p.m. EST Saturday, Dec. 30, at his parents' pole barn, located at 3436 N 70 W in Attica.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center, 4709 N 400 W, Delphi, IN 46923, or the Paws 'n Claws Animal Shelter, 103 Market St., Attica, IN 47918.
